Job Profile

The impacts of climate change and ever-increasing population growth mean that aquifers will constitute the most viable water reserve for our future. Knowing how to manage these resources efficiently and sustainably is essential, and we are an internationally recognised centre of excellence in groundwater development and management, having been responsible for some of the largest groundwater projects in the world.

Demand for our services continues to grow, and we are looking for a talented groundwater modeller to join our core water resources team in Cambridge. This role can be offered on either a full-time or a part-time basis.

We are an equal opportunities employer, and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate, and take positive steps to ensure an inclusive working environment.
